Air Excursions 1952

CENTRAL African Airways Corporation (Phone 20351-2-3) offer some popular excursions at reasonable rates.

1. Victoria Falls. A Viking aircraft leaves every Sunday at 7 a.m. and returns by 6.30 the same evening. The trip  includes a coach ride from Livingstone Airport to the Falls, a conducted tour of the Falls themselves, a launch trip up  the Zambezi with lunch at Kandahar island, tea at the Victoria Falls Hotel and "sundowners" on board the aircraft  returning home—all for £10.

2. A longer air excursion is provided to Lourenco Marques, passengers staying at the Hotel Polana for a week or fortnight as required. The all-in cost is £36 10s. 0d. for a week, £49 15s. 0d. for two.

3. A similar all-in holiday flight may be taken to Lake Nyasa, the cost for one week being £24 9s. 0d.

In both the latter excursions the plane leaves and returns on Saturdays.
